Born in Llano on Dec. 24, 1927, to Ernest and Nora Duncan, he was a lifelong resident of Llano, loving the land and people of the town.
He was a kind and serving man, giving his life to his family, church and community. He was a deacon, Bible study teacher and devout member of First Baptist Church of Llano for 80 years. He barbered in the same chair on Main Street for 61 years after two tours of duty in the U.S. Navy.
Lee enjoyed the history of his county and passed down that love to others in the many stories he shared. He was an avid outdoorsman with a large garden each year and had countless hunting and fishing adventures.
Mr. Duncan was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 66 years, Virginia Ellen Boswell Duncan. Also gone before him are his parents, three brothers and three sisters.
He took great joy in his two children and their spouses, Joel Duncan and wife Dixie Marshall Duncan of Marble Falls and Lou Ann Duncan Benson and husband Jack Benson of Orange. He spent innumerable hours with his four grandchildren, Lendy Duncan Oldaker, Jana Benson Crouch, Jennifer Benson Wright and Robert Curtis Duncan. He is also survived by 10 great-grandchildren as well as two sisters and countless nieces, nephews and other family members and friends.
The family will receive friends 5-7 p.m. Jan. 1 at Waldrope-Hatfield-Hawthorne Funeral Home, 307 E. Sandstone in Llano, (325) 247-4300. A funeral service is 11 a.m. Jan. 2 at First Baptist Church of Llano.
